The third stage of the Cycling race Volta a la Marina, which was to be held on February 7 in the Spanish Barcelona, was blown down by a hurricane, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The wind speed reached 100 km/h.
153 riders are unable to cover the distance. The race had to be interrupted shortly after the start, because the wind was down the competitors and even off road bikes.
«Sometimes the wind was so strong that it was impossible to move forward,» said one of the participants of the race.
